Where Does it Go From Here?

While at my first board meeting for American Mothers, Inc., we discussed nominees for next year.  There was some talk about changing the timeline allowed for filling out a portfolio and introducing new nominees for Mother and Young Mother of the Year.

Since there are only two nominees for Young Mother for this year, I thought it might be a good idea to change it for this year--as compared with a year when they have five nominees and then have to add five more (doesn't that just make sense?).  As I shared my feelings on this, one of the women chimed in that because the other nominee for Young Mother's son is turning 18 in the next couple months, she might be out of the running.

That would make me the only candidate.  "Wait," I said, "My oldest turns 18 in November, I'm out too."

"She does?!"


So will Oregon have no Young Mother of the Year for 2012?

Duh.  Duh.  Duuuuuuhhhhhh.  Stay tuned....

I can just see you sitting on the edge of your seat.

So you don't qualify if any of your kids are 18 at some point later in the year?

And... that wasn't part of the initial vetting process for candidates? Really?

You're still a great MotY candidate in my book, but now what are they going to do if they effectively have to say they couldn't find any MotY this time?

Well, it definitely puts a new twist on the event and makes for an interesting year. What about your younger children, don't you still qualify? Or is it when the first child reaches 18? Well, you definitely have me on the edge of my seat! ;0)
